- Have the humility to ask for help, and accept assistance when people step forward. Delegate tasks; don’t take control of everything.
- Give yourself a break. Make time in your schedule for relaxation or leisurely activities. Taking time for yourself will result in more effective, efficient caregiving.
- Accept caregiving responsibilities as opposed to feeling sad about the situation. Find the silver lining in what it is you’re doing, and realize how it’s making you stronger.
- Don’t neglect your own health. Keep doctor appointments, eat healthily and exercise regularly. Make sure to get enough sleep as it will greatly improve energy, mood and productivity.
